  5. 5. Paperman was created by Walt Disney as a short animated film with a very wide target audience in mind.  Gender – Suitable for either gender but would appeal to female audience more due to ‘love story’ nature of plot.  Age – Older than your typical animated film due to the more adult themed storyline. Would appeal to those aged 15 and older, probably to the age of around 30 as it would still be entertaining. The soundtrack would appeal more to the older end of the audience.

  6. 6. Case Study  Lifestyle – Those who would like to be entertained, maybe interested in fiction books, storytelling or TV series. The short film would appeal to those who enjoy the classic films and are maybe interested in vintage/retro styles.  Spending Power – Paperman could appeal to any audience regardless of spending power. Those aged between 15-19 would have little spending power but this film is a free broadcast and therefore appropriate for them. The older end of the target audience would have more spending available but it’s unnecessary in this case. Understand relationship of elements Know how to analyse a product #product #critical #review
